What do you like best?
This system makes it really easy to identify students by their preferences and connect those students with applicable opportunities. The student-facing platform looks visually appealing. I particularly like the "notes" feature, as it lets the advising team keep tabs on how our students are progressing, and its easy to access.
What do you dislike?
I wish the email messaging function was a little more developed. For example, when I identify a group of students who fit the bill for a certain opportunity, and I batch email them, the email sends but there is no function in the platform to view that sent message or to see who has opened it. It just sends and disappears, so you're not even really sure if it's been sent. The student-facing platform can confuse students sometimes, for example, the system doesn't always clear out search filters in the job posting or appointment sections, and sometimes students will be searching for appointments and express that they can't find any, when really they were unaware that they were searching with filters on.
Recommendations to others considering the product
Unless they update the message function, be sure to have a separate email communication system to use with students.

Keeping track of students and their career progression through note taking, managing online recruiting platform, managing program events. The system has kept us organized in the major elements of our business.
